I am running IE 7 on XP home and when I click on a link in a web page the bottom task bar shows "done" but there in no pdf file and the web page is locked out. I can only release it from the task manager. This same fault also happens when using Firefox. However when I use the other wireless connected computer, also WinXp home, it all connects OK and downloads normal. Both connections are via a Netgear router Any or suggestions most welcome thank you

Thanks for the reply 'Amazing Andrew' but I'm sorry to say that I gave incorrect information on my initial post. I should have said that it was when I clicked a link from within an email page. In this case it's Incredimail. V. sorry about this hands up my fault. Not a very good start for a first time poster
